David Joseph Capobianco, 22, of Fairbanks, was charged with driving under the influence and fifth-degree drugs misconduct Aug. 1 after Alaska State Troopers stopped him for speeding on Geist Road and the Johansen Expressway at 2:27 a.m. According to charging documents, Capobianco told troopers he drank two beers at the Red Fox bar and was driving to the Midnight Mine bar to help some friends who were getting “jumped.” Capobianco was playing a music video on his cell phone, which was on his lap. He offered to turn it off and told troopers he didn’t know he was not supposed to view videos while driving. Capobianco could not provide registration, proof of insurance or a driver’s license. A records check showed his license was suspended and he was required to have an ignition interlock device installed in his Kia sedan. Troopers did not find an interlock device but did find an open bottle of R & R whiskey in the glove compartment and a small “tooter” straw coated with cocaine residue in the center console. Capobianco failed field sobriety tests and registered a breath-alcohol content of 0.157. Fairbanks police responded to the Midnight Mine to check on Capobianco’s story and did not find evidence of a disturbance or anyone needing assistance, according to the charges.
